Luscious Spinach Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2014
This was delicious. I followed other reviewers and put the whole block of cream cheese in. I also added more parmesan to give it a little more flavor. It was a HUGE hit.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
I was looking for an easy recipe for a light, fluffy white cake and this recipe was excellent. I followed other reviewers suggestions and made sure to fully beat the butter, sugar and eggs together until it was light and fluffy. Then I alternated adding the flour and milk (which I increased to 3/4 c), mixing until just combined. Do NOT overmix! The result was great. I made mini-cupcakes with them and they were a huge hit.

Chocolate Pecan Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly and this pie was excellent. After reading all the suggestions to melt the chocolate, I decided I didn't want to do that bc I wanted chunks of chocolate throughout, so I left the chips alone, like the recipe says. The only issue I faced was cooking time. The center was essentially still liquid after 50 min so I covered the pie in foil for another 15 min and it was done. I brought this to Thanksgiving and it was a HUGE hit with my family.

Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2011
I was hesitant to make these bc some of the recent reviews aren't great. But I tried it anyway and they turned out GREAT. They are the perfect balance between chocolate and mint and my family loved them. I added 1 1/2 teaspoons of mint extract for a little stronger mint flavor and it was great. I also used 1 cup of semi sweet chips and 1/4 cup mini semi sweet chips. Delish!

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
As other reviewers suggested, I used hot Italian sausage and added in 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (and the rest of the spices the recipe called for). The result was a spicy, delicious soup! We like our soups a little thicker so I added 9 cups of water and three bouillon cubes and it was perfect. I cooked on low for about 1.5 hours and it was done. Great recipe.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
Easy and delicious! I love that I always have all the ingredients on hand. I grilled the tilapia instead of broiling and it was perfect.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
This was a HUGE hit in our house. I omitted the ranch seasoning and instead lightly seasoned the chicken with garlic, salt and pepper. I added the butter (which I melted) in the beginning. I also added a little bit of water. It turned out SO well. YUM! I can't wait to make this again.

Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This is exactly how my Italian grandmother makes stuffed peppers! This is the perfect recipe. You definitely DO NOT cook the meat before putting them in the pepper. I usually turn the pepper upside down and brown the top part of the ground beef to get the meat cooking. Then I sit it in the sauce and let it simmer for a few hours so the pepper gets very tender.

Easy PHILLY OREO Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
This was my first attempt at making any kind of cheesecake and it was beautiful looking and tasted absolutely delicious. I brought it with me to a party and it was the only dessert that every single person wanted. The top cracked, even though I left it in the oven to cool, but you couldn't tell because of the Oreos on top. The only small change I made to the recipe was I added more crushed Oreos to the top.

Banana Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
I LOVE this recipe! It is so much more flavorful and exciting than regular banana bread. I did make a few small changes. I left out the cherries, used sweetened coconut, subbed pecans bc I didn't have walnuts, and used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. It turned out PERFECT!

Skillet Apple Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
I followed everything reviewer "icookstuff" said and it turned out very nicely. I also added 2 tbl of brown sugar to make it a little bit sweeter. I didn't have rosemary so I used thyme instead, and it worked just fine. I put some crushed pecans on top, and it was great.

Sausage Hash

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
This was a HUGE hit at brunch. I microwaved the potatoes until the they were mostly tender, and then added them in at the end just to brown them a little. I also omitted the carrots.

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
I've never made quiche before, and I really liked how easy and tasty this was. I switched up the ingredients a little bit--- I used frozen spinach, turkey, cheddar and parmesan, and made them into mini-quiches. They're very light and airy, and have a lot of flavor. I'm serving them at brunch tomorrow, so we'll see how others like them.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
This was a huge hit at our Memorial Day bbq. I changed the recipe slightly--I used 1 large head of broccoli and added a small bag of shredded cabbage/carrots (what you'd use for coleslaw). The salad look beautiful and tasted even better! I will definitely make this again.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
This was my first time trying homemade brownies--I usually make them from a box--and I LOVED this recipe. I cut the sugar to 2 1/4 cups and I used cake flour instead of sifting regular flour. They definitely came out a little lighter and not so dense, which I loved. I forgot the chocolate chips and they were still amazing. I cant wait to make these again.

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
This is a delicious and easy recipe. I made a few minor changes. I used 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of nutmeg for a little added zest and it turns out great!

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
I took the advice of other reviewers and reduced the liquid. I also made it healthier by using fat free half and half, and 1% milk. It turned out PERFECTLY. It was a hit at brunch and everyone wanted the recipe. I also love that you make it the night before--so easy! I will DEFINITELY make this again and again.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This recipe is so simple and is amazingly delicious. I didn't have eggs, only egg beaters, so I used a little bit of that, and they still turned out delicious. I also added some nutmeg. I put the pecans on top of a fall salad and they were a HUGE hit!

Best of the Best Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
These were easy to make, but I feel like they are missing something. They are good, but a little bit bland.

Easy Baked Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
I really like this recipe. It's definitely messy, but its quick and very tasty. I used 2 slices of virginia ham and 1 slice of swiss, and rolled up the chicken and secured with a bunch of toothpicks and the cheese did not run out at all. I will make this again!
